Here's the colour swatch!

Just in case you go looking for the papers on Digital Delights web page & can't find this colour, well it was a happy accident! I spoke to Kim on the phone saying how long I'd had my printer....what would you know when I put the phone down to her I need to print some papers off for my Delightful Challenges card & decided to print this pattern off but it was meant to be brown!!! My yellow ink had run out, so I changed that & tried again....still came out purple! Nige ended up changing two more cartridges before it would work! Kim hunnie next time you talk to me about printers, tell me to shush before I say anything about mine lolol!!

This week we haven't got a sponsor, but we still have a fab prize for you! 
The winner will be GDT for two challenges over at Moving Along With The Times, how cool is that? Make sure you get your entries in, so your in with a chance of joining us for two challenges!

Thank you for stopping by today, please pop over to the main challenge blog you really must see the fantastic creation the A TEAM have made to inspire you!

Thank you for joining the LEJ Designs Challenge #53 - Borders and/or Corners over on our blog.
What a fabulous card. The image is so different and would be perfect for teenage girls. The colour selection you have used works so well. The matting and layering looks very professional and I adore that delicate diecut bow corner piece.

I hope you will join us for more of our weekly challenges. There are always gorgeous LEJ Designs images up for grabs as well as extras from our sponcers.
